This game is an interesting one to play, obviously there are a number of you out there who may think that every racing game is the same or a t least very similar.
However, this game while a contender for racing game of the year is different to others. The game incorporates a fairly involving career mode in which you earn money and make your way up leader boards, everything a racing fan would like but they have incorporated a real time damage engine into the gameplay.
For example, if you crash in this game, you will not simply bump off the side, you will notice a difference in gameplay, your car may "lean" to the left and veer in that direction, you may be slower. Essentially this leads to further levels of realism and essentially "fun".
However while this works in practise, the handling on the cars feels like trying to hit a bullseye with a dart thrown by your foot. Make a turn even slightly too sharply (by that i mean turn the steering wheel as opposed to blow on it) and you will skid round more times than you can count.
Ok, so i'm exaggerating a little, but really, do you want a racing GAME or a realistic racing life. If your like me and the majority of racing fans, you prefer the first and thus should buy PGR 4 if you do not already have it which keeps the arcade feel while venturing into a bit of realism.
If however, you already have PGR 4, 1000G on it , the downloadable content, and are frankly sick of it, and have £40, then why not, after all, it's not rubbish
